June 28, 2019

MEMPHIS, Tenn.—-FedEx Logistics, Inc., has brought Manton Air-Sea Pty Ltd, a freight forwarding and 3PL company it acquired in October 2018, into the fold as FedEx Logistics (Australia) Pty Ltd.

FedEx Logistics Australia, which is headquartered in Sydney and has locations in Melbourne and Brisbane, offers the entire suite of FedEx Logistics services. The newly renamed company gives customers access to key trade lanes, allowing them to both build their supply chains within Australia and connect to vital consumer markets throughout Southeast Asia and beyond.

FedEx Logistics Australia is one of the country’s first accredited Australia Trusted Traders, a designation by the Australian Border Force that gives program participants access to a range of benefits that simplify their customs processes and increase speed-to-market.

“Australia is an attractive market, a country with healthy growth and a key connection point for all of the services we offer across the Asia Pacific region,” said Richard Smith, president and CEO of FedEx Logistics.

“We at FedEx Logistics are proud to join our colleagues from FedEx Express and TNT — a FedEx company founded in Australia — in providing our customers a world class portfolio of domestic and international freight, parcel and logistics solutions. We couldn’t be more excited about the possibilities FedEx Logistics Australia offers for our customers, our business and our fantastic team members both in Australia and around the world.”
